Emerald Green Tutorial + Birthday Haul Video (including DSK!!)

Howdy y'all!

My 21st birthday is coming up on July 27, so be sure to mark your calenders! :) I created this Emerald Green tutorial because I was inspired by one of my old videos, wherein I used MAC's 6th Sin Metal-X Cream Shadow. I love the color 6th Sin gives, but the texture and application is a pain in my bootay. So I rummaged around in my cluttered makeup drawer & found a pigment sample I got from the MAC store a while back of Emerald Green pigment. It is a SEXY color! LOL So here is the tutorial I made for it, with a bunch of camera-whoring photos....

Birthday Haul

Mike has been going above and beyond to make my 21st birthday an amazing one. He surprised me last week with a new laptop. He bought me an HP dv3-2150. Its super cute, only 13 inches but super fast. LOVE IT!

Then he surprised me a few days later with 2 MAC brush cleansers and a gift card to MAC. My lovely ladies at the MAC store at the Parks Mall in Arlington tried to help me pick out things, but he was smart to opt for the card, so I can pick it out myself :) Thanks my loves for trying though!!! Here is what I picked out:

Ever since I took my solar nails off a month ago, I have been obsessed with nail polish. I've only used Mercenary (bronze color) and I LOVE it! It is the same nail polish I have on in my haul video.

All these lipsticks are AMAZING! But Big Bow & A Rose Romance are my fave out of the bunch. I need to get another A Rose Romance... it is SO pretty. It looks great on my skin. You know how some pinks make your skin look tired? This doesn't at all... loves it!

I LOVE the Mineralized Satinfinish Foundation. My skin looks AMAZING with it on. I will even go so far as to say I love it more than my Armani foundation... and at nearly half the cost, that's saying something!

DSK Jewelry Haul!!!


LOL seriously her jewelry is amazing! Here's a few pictures of my recent purchases. And I just received a couple of her Lux Pearl bracelets. I still need to take pictures.. they are GAWWWGOUS!

She's so cute. She always sends her packages with candy... YUMMMMAY!



The proper way to serve your BOYFRIEND a jello shot. May I stress BOYFRIEND to all the ladies out there... or significant other. Not just a random person, k? :)

Being ridonk as always ;)

Juicy trying desperately to get out of the bath.

She thinks mean-muggin at me will save her from a bath... I think not.

Her mood changes so easily haha... now she's all sweet and wanting me to hold her. Silly.

Mike gave me a present early... what could it be?

Its a flyer for his work!!! OMGGGG!!!

He got me hanging folders! OMG exactly what I wanted!!!! LOL

My new laptop!

Hahaha I just love her facial expressions...

My messy puppy chewing on a chew bone.

At the going-away party for our Momma Lisa. Good luck in California!

My Dolls. I'm wearing MAC Hello Kitty's Big Bow lipstick... super pretty color!

My Grand Oaks Dolls. It was a superhero theme party but I guess only Courtney got the memo.. hehe

Mike and I after the Texas Rangers vs Boston Red Sox game. Mike is a huge Red Sox (Patriots & Celtics... the traitor) fan so when they got their asses whooped, he wasn't too happy LOL. He got tickets to a really nice suite through his connections at work... my little charmer :)

Taking a break from work, eating sherbert with my girl Tessa.

Anywho... I will get back to y'all soon :)

Loves y'all!
